The XTENDEX® Low-Cost HDMI Over Gigabit IP Extender multicasts digital video and audio signals to one or more receivers up to 394 feet away over a 100/1000 Base-T Gigabit Network connected with CAT6/6a/7 cable.

Each Low-Cost HDMI Over Gigabit IP Extender consists of a local unit that connects to an HDMI source, and a remote unit that connects to an HDMI display. The local and remote units can be connected together for a Point-to-Point connection via CATx or a Point-to-Many connection via a network switch. Support for multiple transmitters requires a managed network switch.


Note: ST-IPHD-LC-V4 models are NOT compatible with ST-IPHD-LC(-CLR) models due to different chipsets being used.

  • Supports HDTV resolutions to 1080p.
    • Extend up to 394 feet (120 meters) with CAT6/6a/7 cable.
    • Extend up to 328 feet (100 meters) with CAT5e cable.
  • Cascade network switches to extend the length long distances.
    • The max cable lengths between the first switch/transmitter and between the last switch/receiver are 394 feet (120 meters) for CAT6/6a/7 or 328 feet (100 meters) for CAT5e cables.
    • The max cable lengths between switches is switch dependent, but 328 feet (100 meters) is typical.
    • An unlimited number of switches can be cascaded.
  • Ideal solution for digital signage applications.
  • Broadcast real-time HDMI video and audio signals to multiple display locations with a managed or unmanaged (also known as non-managed) network switch.
  • Transmits an HDMI signal over one CATx cable.
  • Plug-and-Play installation allows receivers to find the transmitters automatically on the same subnet. (Network configuration may be required for managed network switch.)
  • Web interface for firmware updates.
  • Easily expandable. Add remote units as you add monitors.
  • Inexpensive CATx cable replaces bulky video cables.
  • Supports 100/1000 Base-T Ethernet connection.
  • Built in default EDID table.
  • HDMI 1.3 and HDCP 1.4 compliant.
  • Support for multiple transmitters requires a managed network switch with VLAN support. Standard LAN switches can only support one transmitter.
    • The managed switch must support port-based IEEE 802.1Q VLAN.
    • Each VLAN acts as a separate HDMI Over IP Channel on the network.
      • Each VLAN channel supports one transmitter.
    • Number of local and remote units that can be used is dependent on the backplane bandwidth of the switch.
  • For a point-to-many connection, a standalone network with an unmanaged network switch, hub, or router can be used instead of a managed network switch.
    • Up to 253 receivers supported.
    • It is not recommended to use any other network devices on this standalone network as it may cause a degradation in performance.
  • Uses H.264 technology to process image compression.
  • Local and remote units must be in the same LAN. The units do not support WAN connections.

Note: ST-IPHD-LC-V4 models are NOT compatible with ST-IPHD-LC(-CLR) models due to different chipsets being used.
